ONLY $35 FOR MOST ST LOUIS SPEEDING TICKETS!!

Yes, you most certainly can!! A straightforward St Louis speeding ticket (that for all intents and purposes should be taken care of with relative ease) can absolutely turn into a nightmare for you! But the good news is that this kind of situation can be handled by our office with no problem! Below is a fuller description:

How does someone end up going to jail from a simple traffic ticket? Easy. All you have to do is ignore the ticket (don’t hire an attorney, don’t attend the required court hearing), and the judge will order a warrant for your arrest. Once the warrant is active, you could be hauled off at any moment (especially if you are pulled over for a routine traffic offense in the future).

ONLY $375 FOR MOST ST LOUIS MISDEMEANORS

Yes, you should!! It is amazing to me just how many people believe that a misdemeanor charge in Missouri is “no big deal”. As if such a thing becoming a part of your permanent record will have no negative consequence for your life (or that such a thing will increase your street cred). But the fact of the matter is, a misdemeanor charge can end up wrecking your life!! Below is a description of what can be done:

If you are arrested in the St Louis area, subsequently charged with a misdemeanor, then there are two main ways you can deal with it: 1) you can essentially do nothing, and hope for the best (like appearing by yourself and asking that the court extend some sort of leniency); 2) you can hire a good St Louis criminal defense attorney to help you out!!

ONLY $35 FOR ST LOUIS SPEEDING TICKETS!!

When you plead guilty to a St Louis traffic ticket, the state of Missouri will automatically assess points to your permanent driving record. This is bad because “points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are not a good driver. It is the existence of points on your record that will result in your car insurance exploding.

Instead of pleading guilty to the ticket, we would rather get the citation reduced from a moving violation (like “excessive speeding”) down to a non-moving violation (like “illegal parking”). The reason why we make this our goal is because a non-moving violation does not come with any points (and if you don’t have to worry about the points, then you don’t have to worry about rising auto insurance premiums)!!

Yes, that is a possibility in some jurisdictions. The idea behind this policy is pretty simple: the court figures there is a greater chance of you not driving so fast in the future if the punishment this time involves some sort of jail time. Usually this is described by the court as “shock time,” and it lasts for a couple of days (like no more than 48 hours, and it can normally be served over the weekend so that it doesn’t interfere with your job). But a good St Louis speeding ticket can keep this kind of penalty to a minimum! Below is a more thorough description:

Let’s say you are caught going 92 miles per hour in a 55mph speed zone. This would of course mean that you were travelling 37 miles over the speed limit. In most municipalities and counties, the local prosecutors will not provide a recommendation to the judge (to reduce the ticket to a non-moving violation so that you do not receive any points to your permanent driving record) because of a local rule or policy.

Because pleading guilty to a St Louis speeding or traffic ticket will allow the Missouri Department of Revenue to assess a certain number of points to your permanent driving record. Once points go on your driving record, then your auto insurance provider will jack up your rates (through the roof). Why? Because points on your record makes it appear as if you are a bad driver (and the insurance folks will use this as their excuse to increase your premiums).

In addition, too many points on your record can easily result in a suspension of your driving privileges altogether. This suspension can last up to a full year. And of course if you are caught operating a motor vehicle during this period of time, then you will be cited with a St Louis Driving While Suspended ticket.

Yes, you should! Why? Because when it comes down to a discussion of the facts, it will be your word against the police officer’s. And guess who usually wins that battle? Most juries and judges (and certainly prosecutors) will defer to the version of events given by the cop (and assume that you are making up a story). But if you have video-graphic proof of what happened, that is fantastic proof of what really happened!!

The fact of the matter is that when a cop fills out his or her police report, they are going to write that report in such a way that it makes it easier for the prosecutor to press charges against you. But just because the cop knows how to write a report that makes you look awful, it does not at all mean that those facts are accurate. Indeed, the way in which a cop writes his or her report is to purposefully make it seem that not only you broke the law, but that the officer didn’t do anything wrong when he/she arrested you.

Absolutely not. The police cannot in any way, shape, or form require that you answer a thing. And in fact, it is very often in your best interest to NOT answer a cop’s questions (because in some situations, any answer you give will end up coming back to haunt you).

The job of a police officer (largely) is to gather facts so that he/she can determine whether or not a crime has been committed (and thereafter make an arrest, or issue a citation). And in order for the cop to make that determination, he or she will engage in the most fundamental of all police work: asking questions.

Of course, the best way for anyone to learn something is to ask questions (that’s a given). But what most people unfortunately believe (very often to their detriment) is that when a cop asks them questions, that they will be completely safe and secure when answering. But as a general rule, you should never think for a second that the questions posed by a police officer are in any way meant to keep you safe (and that by answering those questions, you are running the risk of much more difficult situation down the road (even if you are completely innocent)).

ONLY $150 TO HANDLE MOST ST LOUIS ARREST WARRANTS

If the court has assessed a fine in regards to your St Louis traffic ticket, then you will typically have thirty (30) to sixty (60) days to pay it off. If, however, you do not get the fines paid by this deadline (or if you have not set up any sort of payment plan with the clerk), then chances are the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest. But even if it gets to that point, a good attorney can help you out! A more thorough description is given below:

When you hire an experienced St Louis speeding ticket attorney to help you get your ticket reduced to a non-moving violation (so that you do not receive any points to your permanent driving record), the court will usually assess a fine of between $100 – $200. As mentioned above, the court will normally allow you a sufficient period of time in which to pay this fine (and even work out a payment plan if you need additional time).

ONLY $185 FOR MOST ST LOUIS DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED TICKETS!!

No, that is not the case at all!! In fact, there is a good chance that you can get back out on the road driving with a valid license sooner than you think! But it requires that you get in touch with us as soon as possible. Because most jurisdictions consider a St Louis Driving While Suspended ticket as a Class A Misdemeanor.

First of all, a Class A Misdemeanor in the state of Missouri can come with up to one (1) full year of jail time and a $1,000 fine. And if you were to plead guilty to this sort of charge, it would become a part of your permanent driving record. In addition, the Department of Revenue would assess twelve (12) points to your record.

Then each ticket will have to be dealt with individually (within its respective municipality). Why? Because St Louis has a system of government in which each muni has its own police force, courts, and set of rules governing how tickets are handled. This means that you will need a law firm that is familiar with each one (and preferably one that is on a first-name basis with the court clerks!!) As luck would have it, you have successfully found that law firm!! A fuller description is given below:

Let’s say you have a speeding ticket in St Louis City, a lane change violation in Berkeley MO, and another speeding ticket in Bel-Nor MO. All three of these municipalities not only has their own judges, prosecutors, and police; each of these muni’s handles traffic tickets differently!!

Some muni’s will allow an attorney to do all his/her work via fax or email; some will only allow the ticket to be handled by making the attorney personally appear (as is the case in St Louis City), and others will only allow the attorney to do his business by way of regular mail.
